DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT use argente registry cleaner. I used it and all seemed fine until I tried to open any programs including firefox and outlook, they took about three minutes to open, they were previously fine. Luckily I restored the registry from the backup function in the program, all was well after that.
